Race & Gender (in Brief)

For the most part, I don’t want to create a lengthy dialogue on race or gender on my blog. I do this enough in my personal life without catapulting myself onto the internet.

Simply, I wanted to say that I enjoyed my time in college a lot, but I have rarely had an urge to go back. In fact, I live fifteen minutes away from the university and I haven’t been back since my graduation. However, towards the end of my college career, I took a course on race and gender in politics. Wouldn’t that be the course to be in now? For this course, I would like to go back to college.

I am just hoping that all of this pettiness doesn’t overshadow the real positives that we have in front of us. When this is over, no matter what the outcome, we should be able to look back at this time and remember it as a stepping stone. It will be a great loss if no one is able to look past the politics and the media to see the big picture.

I'm sure that class would be a buzz right now! I wish we could see things through a more honest lens, it would make all of this so much easier! But I agree with you, we are in a very pivotal point in our nations history, no matter the outcome!
